A Beginner's Guide to Ball Stretching and Testicle Play
Once upon a time (and we will sadly probably never know when) the first brave adventurer decided to yank on his balls to see what it felt like. Perhaps he was just bored. Perhaps he had temporarily caught them somewhere earlier in the day and felt a not unpleasurable twang as he pulled them out. Whatever his reasons, he set in motion a trend that has since taken the world by storm: ball stretching. Since then, men everywhere have followed in his tragically forgotten footsteps and stretched their stones and sacks silly!
But is ball stretching exactly what it sounds like? And is it just a painful form of BDSM?
To answer these questions and more, here is our beginner's guide to ball stretching and testicle play.
Paging Dr Scrotum: Ball Stretching 101
The grapefruits dangling between your legs are more than just a pair of wrinkly ol' ornaments. They're sensitive and packed with nerve endings, just waiting to be explored, squeezed, and stretched to new heights of pleasure.
Ball stretching is the practice of elongating the scrotal sac and pulling the testicles away from the body. Of course, one of the main uses of ball stretching is in BDSM play. Many a naughty sub has had a merciless dom attach a gadget to their little round fellows.
But before you get your tighty whiteys in a twist (not a euphemism!), ball stretching isn't about inflicting pain or causing permanent damage. It's a consensual, enjoyable activity that can enhance your sexual experiences and help you connect with your body and your partner.
Ball stretching can lead to unique sensations, increased sexual pleasure and in some cases, even a more attractive appearance (beauty is, after all, in the eye of the beholder!)
A Toy Story: Gadgets and Gizmos for Your Gonads
Now that we've tickled your fancies (a cute pet name for your testes), it's time to introduce you to the wild world of sex toys and devices specifically designed for ball stretching and testicle play. From simple silicone rings to more elaborate contraptions that look like something out of a steampunk fever dream, there's a wide range of gadgets to cater to your every testicular whim and desire.
Here are some of our faves:
These simple devices known as ball stretchers, usually made of leather or silicone, wrap around the scrotum and testicles, gently pulling them away from the body. They come in various sizes and materials to ensure a snug, yet comfortable fit.
Parachute Ball Stretchers
Picture a tiny parachute embracing your balls, lovingly cradling them as they descend from the heavens. That's the essence of the parachute ball stretcher, a cone-shaped device that attaches to your scrotum and allows you to add weights for increased sensation.
These medieval-looking contraptions have nothing to do with humility and everything to do with pleasure. Humblers lock around the base of the scrotum, forcing you to keep your legs bent and your balls exposed. They are perfect for BDSM play and anyone looking to explore their submissive side.
Vibrating Testicle Massagers
As the name suggests, these delightful toys are designed to massage your testicles using gentle vibrations. It's like having a tiny orchestra playing a symphony on your balls.
Tips, Tricks and Testicle Etiquette: Your Balls-to-the-Wall Guide
Before you dive headfirst into the ball pit, it's essential to follow some basic guidelines to ensure a safe and pleasurable experience for everyone involved.
Here are five top tips for enjoying all the pleasures of ball stretching and testicle play without any of the health and safety hazards that could see a complaint made to your bedroom HR department:
1. Communicate with your partner
Always discuss boundaries and preferences with your partner before embarking on your testicular adventure. This will ensure nobody goes too far or oversteps a boundary.
2. Have a safe word in place
If you are ball-stretching as part of BDSM play, it is crucial you have a safe word and/or a safe gesture in place so your partner knows when you want them to stop.
3. Lube it up
Never skimp on the lube when it comes to ball stretching and testicle play. Lube reduces friction, making the experience more comfortable and enjoyable.
4. Start slow
Just as you should never ego lift in the gym, ego stretching is equally as dangerous and counter-productive. Gradually increase the weight, pressure, or intensity of the play to avoid injury and maximise pleasure.
5. Keep it clean
Hygiene is always a must when exploring the nether regions so be sure to clean your toys and devices thoroughly before and after use to prevent infection or irritation.
